Grand Slam Pro Division Format

How to Qualify

Grand Slam Tournaments with at least 16 registered Premier teams will use the Pro Division format. In this format, the top 8 teams according to cumulative points will be eligible for the Pro Division.


Pool Play:

  • 2 Pools of 4
  • Snake seeding based on cumulative season points
    • Pool A: 1, 4, 5, 8
    • Pool B: 2, 3, 6, 7
  • Best of 3 to 21, cap at 30


  • Match Wins
  • Head to Head Wins
  • Game Won Percentage
  • Point Won Percentage

    Every time a tie is broken we would go back to the top of the criteria to re-evaluate teams still tied. If there's a three way tie and we can't use head to head, it would then go to game win percentage. If that leaves two teams tied we'd go back to the top and look at their head to head results.

Bracket Play:

  • Single Elimination
  • Best of 3 to 21, no cap
